This coverplate die from Papertrey Ink is seriously one of my most favorite holiday dies ever. It looks beautiful so many ways, but one of my favorite ways to treat these beautiful cover plate die cuts is to watercolor them to bring out all of the incredible details.
For the panel behind the cover plate, I used my Twinkling H2O’s to add some very subtle gold shimmer to another piece of watercolor paper. It’s very slight, but in real life it adds some beautiful shimmery shine. I die cut the “peace” from Wet Paint Holiday using DCWV Glitz paper, heat embossed the “be with you” in Princess Gold, and glued the cover plate down. The last little embellishment was to add some sequins from Lucy Abrams in shades of champagne and pink.
